Aims: As the members of the flight team, nurses should be familiar with the situation and proper transfer of patients, so that a safe transport can be arranged. Education and familiarization of nurses to enhance knowledge, performance, and attitude led us to conduct a research to investigate the effect of air transport and evacuation training using lecture method on nurses' levels of knowledge, attitude and performance.
Methods: In the present quasi-experimental study in 2011, 30 nurses working in one of the selected hospitals of Tehran were sampled using simple sampling and were trained in terms of air evacuation and transport using lecture method. The effect of education on knowledge, comprehension, and application levels in cognitive domain were evaluated before, immediately after, and one month following the training using a multiple choice researcher-designed questionnaire including thirty questions. The questionnaire validity was approved by the faculty members and the reliability by the Kuder-Richardson 21 test (0.72). Data was analyzed by SPSS17 statistical software, chi square, and repeated-measures ANOVA test.
Results: The mean (±standard deviation) score was respectively 4.17 (±1.64), 7.67 (±1.4), and 7.27 (±1.9) before, immediately after, and 4 weeks following the training in terms of knowledge, 4.53 (±1.2), 6.9 (±1.9), and 5.7 (±1.5) in terms of comprehension, and 3.3 (±1.4), 6.53 (±1.6), and 6.33 (±1.6) in terms of application. The average total scores obtained was 12.03 (±2.8), 21.1 (±3.3), and 19.3 (±4.01) before, immediately after, and 4 weeks following the education out of the total 30 scores. There was also a significant relationship in the learning process between all the three levels (p<0.001).
Conclusion: The study results were indicative of the effects of education on learning levels, demonstrating the usefulness of air evacuation and transport training using lecture method; however, it is suggested that new training strategies be evaluated in order to bring more effective education.
